Exciting news! From 2019 the Wycombe Half Marathon will be known as The Hell-Fire Half and 10k

To better reflect the history of the magnificent West Wycombe Park we are privileged to run through and its association with the rather scandalous Hell-Fire Club we have decided on the name change.

Finishers will alos receive a Finishers T-shirt and a race t-shirt.

Course Details

Starting and finishing in Adams Park, High Wycombe, you have a choice of either a half marathon or 10k.

Both races finish in the football stadium.

    Stunning Route, hilly but stunning, not a course to beat your PB, but certainly one to add to the LETSDOTHIS list

    Did the 10k in 2019

    Fantastic event but very challenging with the first half up several very steep hills. But then, boom you get to around 6km and it’s down hill with stunning views. Great t shirt and goody bag at the end. Well down everyone.

  • Did the Half Marathon in 2019

    My first half marathon and I loved it. It was a challenging course with the hills and multitude of running surfaces, but the route was very scenic. The atmosphere was fantastic. There were loads of marshals placed along the entire route, which meant you were never far from support (or help if you needed it) and the marshals were all really enthusiastic. The water stations were placed perfectly in my opinion - just as I needed one it seemed to be there. It was really well organised and all of the runners seemed to love it. The medal, technical t-shirt and goody bag at the end were great too.

    The course was absolutely beautiful. Marshals were really supportive and motivating the runners at each and every junctions. To be fare, certain downhill road were corrected to runners need which is a great worker by the organising team...
